Zionists Seeking Hard to Prevent Close Relations between Iran, Egypt

"We think that the relations between Iran and Egypt are moving the path towards completion. Yet, I should say that many plots have been hatched to deter this move but these plots will prove futile due to the wisdom and huge capacity of the two Muslim Iranian and Egyptian nations," Head of the parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi told FNA on Monday.

Yet, he asked for more vigilance and prudence against enemies' plots, reminding that the plots hatched against the resumption of Tehran-Cairo ties aim to harm not just the two nations, but the entire Muslim world as resumption of the relations between Iran and Egypt will serve the interests of the entire Muslim world.

To conclude his remarks, Boroujerdi appreciated the positive remarks made by Mohamed Hussein Tantawi, who leads the military council ruling Egypt, and Egyptian Foreign Minister Nabil Al-Arabi on Cairo's enthusiasm for developing bilateral relations with Iran.

After the collapse of Hosni Mubarak's regime, both Iranian and Egyptian officials voiced their interest in the resumption of diplomatic relations between the two countries and Iran's top diplomat Ali Akbar Salehi officially invited Egypt's newly appointed Foreign Minister Nabil al-Arabi to pay a visit to Tehran.

The invitation letter was submitted to the Egyptian foreign minister during a meeting between Director of Iran's Interest Section in Cairo Mojtaba Amani and al-Arabi.

Egyptian daily, al-Ahram quoted the spokesman of the Egyptian foreign ministry as saying that Salehi in his message had lauded the recently uttered positive remarks by al-Arabi about the promotion of bilateral ties with Iran.

Al-Arabi in his first press conference earlier this month announced Cairo's preparedness to open "a new page with Iran".

The official went on to say that the Egyptian government does not see Iran as an enemy state, noting the two countries have historically rooted relations.

He further stated that establishment of diplomatic ties depends on the Iranian side.

In reply, Salehi also said that Iran is ready to resume relations with Cairo.
